I decided to try my poppy pattern in tone on tone fabric, rather than the hand dyed. I'm quite pleased with the result. I also used WonderFil thread for the thread painting, really do like their threads.
Just finished this yesterday. I've included a close up, love that copper thread!
We finally had a bit of rain, but not near enough...we'll take what we can get though.

I love the fabrics that you chose and the results. I have used the hand dyed fabrics for flowers, but love this look!

The poppies look great on the muted background. Nice thread painting!

Goodness, these are really nice!!
Can't wait to see how you incorporate this new technique into your 'ladies'... I know you will, and it will be great!

I love the poppies on tone-on-tone! The colours are so intense I can almost feel them on my skin!

Someone on the list mentioned your poppies and I am so glad I went back to look....gorgeous!
I love poppies and your threadpainting really does them justice.

Nice poppy quilt!
Did you hear that the Wonderful Co. is sponsoring a very generous prize for a quilt made with Wonderfil threads ... in the CQA/ACC show?
